Had an impressive first start as a professional at the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica season-opening 70th Avianca Colombia Open, an event he finished as runner-up with rounds of 69-67-68-67 in February. Opened a three-shot lead with seven holes to play on the final round, but lost his pace by bogeying Nos. 13 through 15. Despite birdieing the next two holes, he ended up losing by two to José de Jesús Rodríguez, who made eagle on No. 17 to card a 64.
2016: Competing as an amateur, posted rounds of 64-70-71-74 to tie for third at the Dev Series Final Malinalco Classic to secure exempt status for the 2017 season on PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.
